First stills of Chang Ge Xing with Dilireba, Wu Lei, Zhao Lu Si, and Liu Yu Ning

Chang Ge Xing aka Song of the Long March (長歌行) is adapted from the manhua of the same name written by Xia Da. It follows our heroine, who’s a princess on the run. Her father is Crown Prince Li but after the new Emperor ascended the throne, he ordered his brothers and families put to death. She escapes, fakes her own death, disguises herself as a male and plots her revenge against the new Emperor, becoming a fierce military leader in the process. The manhua is highly rated among fans and has solid rating of 9 on douban. Readers also poured their hearts out for the arts as well.

Reviews are promising, our heroine sounds awesome – merciless and highly intelligent. Since she was young, she was trained in martial arts and battle strategies, so she holds her own in a fight. Our male protagonist is no less of a worthy character – he’s the adopted son of Jieli Khan, a leader of his own army, who is known for his ruthlessness and doing things his ways in the beginning. He slowly melts that attitude and begins to realize how his actions could affect those around him after meeting our leading lady. But he doesn’t know SHE is a SHE for a little bit. HEH.

    The manhua is among my top favourite manhua but I am keeping my expectations low from the drama. The visuals look good so there is still a bit of hope the drama will be good too. I am curious how it will end as the manhua is on hiatus since years without an ending, it just stops at a random point.

    The stills make it so much more obvious this drama did not cast the right people at all. It’s so obvious that Zhao Lusi would make a better female lead in this drama than Dilireba. Changge is not some kind of heartbroken, tortured girl. Zhao Lusi’s pics look so much more like what i’d imagine Changge to be than Dilireba’s. Ahhh and then there’s Wu Lei. No words. People were screaming that he’d be a perfect fit, but the still’s are out and literally he barely even looks like 10% of Ashina Sun.

    If the supporting cast were flipped to be the main cast… then this drama would already be 100% much better casted.

    If Dilireba looks like a devastated little bunny that Changge isn’t, then Zhao Lusi looks like the murderous and scheming little princess that Changge is. That supporting male, too, second to last pic looks so much more like Ashina Sun than Wu Lei does. I imagine that if he were in a Xiongnu general’s suit, he’d be even more like Ashina Sun. Ahhhh this drama really just hurts my heart. The fact that they got the rights to do this drama means that this shit will probably be the only live-action Changge Xing we’ll ever get. Buying rights is a really iffy process and… dang. This drama doesn’t look like it even has a semblance of what the original manhua was like.

      I haven’t read the manhua recently but like, this comment is so off from what I remember. Spoilers below, do not read if you haven’t read the story yet.

      Initially (and still now), I’m unsure of Dilraba playing this character, not for the reasons you stated, but because Changge went through so much shit that at one point, she even contemplated not living anymore and there was a whole arc where she abandoned everything b/c she was, yes, broken and tortured. Changge is strong, but she has feelings, like a normal human being and heck, she is a teenager who went through crazy stuff. I wasn’t sure if Dilraba can pull that off b/c from what I can remember, she’s quite weak at emotional scenes.

      Murderous and scheming? I’m not sure where this is coming from. Scheming, maybe. She has good battle strategies b/c that’s something she’s always been interested in since she was young. But murderous? When did she kill for fun? I wouldn’t even say she is ruthless tbh. She gave herself up to Ashina to save the entire city. She was trying to fight to save as many people as she can, despite how futile it was and had to be frozen at the end, b/c the governor knew she would disagree with him giving up his life. And she literally gave up on the revenge of her family and herself b/c she decided peace for the country was more important.

      It’s cute that buttering ZLS up. She won’t make a convincing chang ge with that soft face of hers. And she doesn’t look like murdering and scheming princess from her poster as well LOL. Also, this is just posters, and you have the superpower to already know reba cannot pull off li chang ge. WOW and LMAO.
